At the center of the Christian practice is reciprocity through charity, humility, and sacrifice. When you find ways to support your community, you contribute to the virtuous cycle of giving that can be rewarding for many.
Often for Christian students, giving back to their community involves implementing their faith into their education and solving the complex problems of the world to leave their community in a better place.
As one of the most progressive fields today, computer science gives students the chance to piece together the most complicated issues of the world and their local communities. Through experience in computer science and technology, the opportunities are limitless to who you can reach, how you can help, and what you can provide.
To encourage Christian students in computer science to continue their studies toward a brighter future for themselves and their community, the Faith and Tech Scholarship exists and will be awarded to one current high school or undergraduate student in computer science.
To apply, please submit a side-project you have completed or are currently working on. Also, please write about what technology and faith mean to you.
Please provide an example of a tech-related side project you have completed (or are currently working on). Please submit a GitHub link for your code, and give a short description of it.
Please also write a short paragraph about what technology + faith means to you.
The application deadline is Oct 10, 2021. Winners will be announced on Nov 10, 2021.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Nov 10, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
